CREECA LECTURE: Toxic Crimes Project

: Legal Activism Against Environmental Destruction in the Conflict in Eastern Ukraine

Description
War often destroys the environment -- either directly when armies poison foliage as a military strategy or indirectly, when toxins leak from bombed industrial sites. In the “Toxic Crimes Project”, we examine how rights advocates—lawyers, experts, and activists—protect the environment from wartime environmental destruction, how they promote the idea that the environment has legally enforceable rights, and how they expand international legal mechanisms to protect the environment.
